This easy dinner was a huge success! We love chicken cutlets, but I wanted to twist it up a bit and try to leave out the breadcrumbs. I used the Ninja to quickly ground up some almonds and pecans & it worked great. You could also use almond meal (almonds already ground up) if you want to skip this step. I liked blending it myself because I left some pieces bigger than others for that extra crunch….

This is a delicious & light meal that does not take a lot of time to prepare at all! We cooked up about 3 lbs of chicken following this recipe and leftovers were great as well. I suggest buying organic chicken whenever possible. Trust me – when you have a meal with simple, fresh ingredients such as this one – you can absolutely taste the difference in this higher quality meat. Not only does it taste better, but it is most definitely better FOR you. …
I love cooking some chicken sausage up in a pan with a little bit of oil as a nice dinner with a decent amount of protein, but sometimes it can be a bit plain without a sauce. I had some chicken broth over from dinner the other night, so I decided to make a light “cream” sauce to cook the sausage, peppers, and onions in. It came out great! It is light, but flavorful and would be very nice over rice. I used three packages of chicken sausage and we have plenty left over, so I would say this recipe works for 4 people & maybe a leftover plate!
Tonight, I decided to make chicken fajitas… and I forgot to get tortillas of some sort, so we made-do without. This is a simple, inexpensive (once you have these spices in your collection ;)), and well-rounded meal to make. It serves about 4.
